Daily Joy and Gratitude


This song is playing on Pandora by Thrid Day as I stare blankly at this screen.  Isn’t it a joy to see how just the right words can come at just the right time?  Part of that song comes from an old hymn written in the early 1900s by Helen Howarth Lammel. (click here if you’d like to listen to it)

Turn your eyes upon Jesus and look for His wonderful face.  And the things of earth will grow strangely dim in the light of His glory and grace.

May the things of earth grow strangely dim as I make a effort to seek joy within and capture the daily gifts from God.  He gives us mercy and grace and just what we need.  He gives us people and strategic places, divine appointments, nature to relish and the Holy Spirit to live in us.

Counting joys brings daily joy and gratitude.   How about you?
